Understand Activity Templates

Activity templates serve the purpose of creating activities on a time distance diagram. Within an activity template, the appearance of an activity is predefined as well as data for the calculation, cost, and resources. This data can be set later on individually inside an activity.

Select the main folder Tilos Explorer > Library > Activity Libraries > Activity Templates to show a structured list of existing activity templates inside the Working Window. Double-click to open the selected item for editing.

Select a required sub-level directory inside the Tilos Explorer > Library > Activity Libraries > Activity Templates to open the already existing Activity templates inside the Working Window.

Within the table are the important properties of an Activity template displayed.

The Activity attributes and further tabs of Activities are described in the section Objects/Activity.

click 'New Activity template' to add Activity templates or on  'Delete Activity template' to delete selected entries.

To edit an Activity template click  'Edit ...'.

Alternatively set a right mouse click inside the Tilos Explorer > Library > Activity Libraries on Activity Templates to create a 'New Activity Template (F3)'.
